14 New No-Fly
Areas Added to List of Nuclear Sites by FAA;
Six other Sites Removed From
TFRs; 12 Site Locations/Bearings Revised
The FAA has released a revised NOTAM that adds 14 locations to the list of prohibited airspace near nuclear facilities in the U.S. The new
NOTAM, FDC 1/1979, also removes six TFR areas from the previously issued NOTAM FDC 1763, plus makes revisions of locations or bearings to 12 others. Please note that the new NOTAM does not go into effect until 2200 UTC (4 p.m. CST) Friday, Nov. 2, thus allowing pilots
some lead time to remove aircraft from affected airports. The existing NOTAM FDC /1763 remains in effect until
areas eliminated by the new NOTAM
Pilots and other aviation enthusiasts can obtain updated, easy-to-understand
electronic maps that show current Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) areas through a free service offered by EAA.
These maps show exactly where TFR area borders are located, so pilots have a clear understanding where flying is and is not allowed.
To access the maps, pilots can go to the “TFR Airspace Maps” link on the top of the EAA web
site at www.eaa.org.
Passes Aviation Security Bill
A critical vote occurred Thursday
evening in the House of Representatives on HR 3150, the Aviation Security
Bill. The vote enables EAA to continue the fight to prevent the
enactment of a Senate version of the Bill that could have an adverse
impact on general aviation. The Senate version contains an Amendment
by Senator Herb Kohl (D-WI) that would require the FAA to implement a
security program for aircraft weighing less than 12,500 lbs. The
favorable House Bill, along with the Senate version passed earlier in the
week, will be sent to conference committee where a final Bill will emerge
for the President¹s signature. EAA and other general aviation
associations will continue to work on Capital Hill, with House and Senate
Conferees, in an effort to minimize the impact of proposed new security
requirements on general aviation.
Allowed at 15 Airports Within Nuclear TFR Areas
in nuclear power plant TFRs were allowed to relocate from 15 airports for
four hours Friday, Nov. 2, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. EST. Part 91 IFR and VFR general aviation departures
were authorized to relocate subject to several provisions. (read

Unveils Donor Honor Roll, Announces Annual 'Fund For Excellence'
EAA members and aviation enthusiasts have grown accustomed to enjoying the freedom of flight to its fullest extent. Incidents such as the Sept. 11
terrorist attacks have caused these freedoms to be restricted or worse yet, lost forever to our children and grandchildren.
Support of the EAA Aviation Foundation through its “Annual Fund For Excellence,” has never been more important! Our pride and potential as an organization rests in large part on support for the high standards that distinguish us from others. Your contributions allow young people, aviation enthusiasts and EAA members alike to enjoy the history of flight and promote its future.
The EAA Aviation Foundation has established a "Donor
Honor Roll" that lists all donors to the Foundation for fiscal year
2000-2001.This list is now available at the foundation's website. (read
EAA East Coast Regional Fly-In Moves to September
Citing a need to increase the amount of daylight available, not to mention raise the odds of having good weather, the EAA East Coast Regional Fly-In has moved from October to September.
Beginning in 2002, the 32nd year of the fly-in, the three-day event will be held from Sept. 13-15 at the New Garden Flying Field (N57), Toughkenamon, PA, about 25 miles west of
EAA Co-Sponsors History of Flight Conference
A three-day international symposium on the history of flight was held Oct. 26-28 in the very state where Orville and Wilbur Wright achieved their breakthroughs almost a century ago.
“They Taught the World to Fly: The Wright Brothers and the Age of Flight” was attended by about 300 people, along with a concurrent teacher workshop on the campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh. The conference was sponsored by the North Carolina First Flight Centennial Commission, EAA and 20 other organizations nationwide.

The Wright Experience Wind
Tunnel-Tests 1901 Glider Reproduction
Before they learned to fly, the Wright brothers learned to glide. A reproduction of one of the aviation pioneers' early gliders, constructed by Ken Hyde and The Wright Experience
(TWE), has undergone wind tunnel tests at NASA's Langley Research Center's Full Scale Tunnel in Hampton, Va.
The 1901 glider was an important step in the Wrights' development of their1903 Flyer not because it was successful, but because it
wasn't. The 1901 glider was extremely difficult to control and it didn't demonstrate flight-handling characteristics consistent with theories used by the Wright
brothers. So Wilbur and Orville decided they needed a different approach. They built a small-scale wind tunnel
and started the world's first successful wind tunnel-based aircraft design program, a precursor to the systems engineering approach used by the aviation industry today.
The wind tunnel tests are part of ongoing research to uncover and document how the Wright brothers, neither of whom finished high school, managed to conquer the principles of flight in five short years. Since none of the Wrights' first prototype aircraft were saved, nor were their early construction documents and drawings, Hyde is retracing the brothers' groundbreaking steps to flight.
These efforts will continue through December 17, 2003, with EAA’s Countdown to Kitty Hawk flight of TWE’s 1903 Wright Flyer reproduction at Kill Devil Hills.

Airwolf Signs on as Sponsor for Air Show Performers
Airwolf Filter Corp., maker of remote-mounted oil filter systems for air-cooled aero engines, has become a sponsor of the
AeroShell Aerobatic Team and solo performer Herb Baker. The AeroShell Team, formerly known as the North American Team, flies its famous T-6s at air shows amassing over 250 flight hours per airplane per year, much of it inverted. Baker is the only full-time performer in the nation who flies a 1425 hp 1957 Navy T-28C. Remote-mounted Airwolf filter systems are becoming standard equipment in a growing number of radial-powered aircraft. “Airwolf provides more time between oil changes and longer engine TBO,” said AeroShell Team Leader Alan Henley. “We’re proud to have Airwolf sponsor our venerable fleet of T-6s.” Baker believes the Airwolf system will earn him extra engine TBO and prevent premature wear. “I can change oil every 30 hours and have the confidence of a safer aerobatic performance because the oil is cleaner,” he said.
Q & A:
Question of the Week
Question For EAA Aviation
Information Services - I'm unclear about changing a prop on a homebuilt. If the aircraft is a kit and the kit supplier recommends a prop for their design, is it ok to switch to that type of prop if it's not the prop we certified the airplane with, or must we decertify? We certified
with a Hoffman 3 blade electric and we want to fly for a while with a 3 blade fixed performance (Clark Lydick). We will re-calculate the weight and balance and log it. Thanks.
Answer: The procedure you must use for making a major change to your homebuilt is outlined in your operating limitations. (These OpLims were given to you along with the airworthiness certificate when the aircraft was inspected by the FAA inspector or DAR.)
There are three possibilities, depending on when your aircraft was originally licensed. You may be required to have the aircraft re-inspected and re-licensed. Or, your OpLims may require you to notify your FAA FSDO of the change, at which time they will issue you a new flight test period. The latest OpLims allow you to take care of the major change without contacting the FSDO, by making logbook entries indicating the start and completion of a flight test period.
The Operating Limitations issued to your aircraft will spell out which procedure you are required to follow. It's very important that you follow the specific procedure that's called out in your OpLims, as you can not substitute a newer procedure if your OpLims are an earlier version.
